Pastor David reads Deuteronomy 7:6-11 and offers a prayer from John Jea:
I hear thy voice, O God of grace,
That loudly calls for me;
That I may rise and feel thy face,
Before the dawning day.
While others still lie in their beds,
And have no thought to pray,
Their sleep doth still keep them secure,
Like death, upon the frame.
But, O my God, ’tis thou that hears
My mourning feeble cries;
I cry for grace, thy Spirit’s aid,
Before the sun do rise.
That like the sun I may fulfill
My business of the day;
To give the life that Jesus did,
To go and preach today.
O like the sun I would fulfill
My duties and obey
Thy Spirit’s voice that speaks within,
And tells me keep the day.
